InDesign CS Book will NOT repaginate - Adobe Indesign Windows

I established a new InDesign CS book (running Windows XP) and added a series of multipage doents, each shows it's number of pages (1-5) rather than it's sequential page numbers in the book. The book will not repaginate into sequential page numbers. The books are closed when I try to repaginate. Each doent is set to "continue from previous doent." Automatic page renumbering is checked. I shift click to highlight each doent in the book. It still will not show sequential page numbers in the book palette. What am I doing wrong? What have I overlooked? Aghast & haggard here... ...

    Default InDesign CS Book will NOT repaginate

    I established a new InDesign CS book (running Windows XP) and added a series of multipage doents, each shows it's number of pages (1-5) rather than it's sequential page numbers in the book. The book will not repaginate into sequential page numbers. The books are closed when I try to repaginate. Each doent is set to "continue from previous doent." Automatic page renumbering is checked. I shift click to highlight each doent in the book. It still will not show sequential page numbers in the book palette. What am I doing wrong? What have I overlooked? Aghast & haggard here... ;-) Many thanks, M.

    Default Re: InDesign CS Book will NOT repaginate

    Go to your preferences and make sure section numbering is used for each doent. You should then be able to repaginate whether the files are opened or closed.

    If you are trying to make your book show page X of Y, see this posting.

    If not, what you need to do is insert an auto page number character (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+N if you still have the default shortcut keys) on the master page (do this for each section of the book). Go to the first page (Page 1) of each section of your book. Click Layout>Numbering and Section Options>Start Page Numbering at: 1>Section Prefix (Enter the number of the section here with a hyphen i.e. "2-")>Tick Include Prefix when Numbering Pages>Ok.
